Our Funeral Alternatives Locations

Founded in 2002 by Clair Ferris, a second-generation funeral director, and his wife, Sharon, Funeral Alternatives' mission is to honor the traditions of families in the South Sound area with ceremonies that reflect their values while prioritizing their best interests. This commitment to honest excellence at a fair price underpins our approach to serving our community and families, ensuring success and enriching lives. By guiding families through the planning process with empathy rather than sales pressure, Clair and his team offer a low-stress, family-first experience. Expanding from its original Tumwater location, Funeral Alternatives now serves Centralia and Lacey. We’ve added South Sound Manor, a full-service banquet and event center in Tumwater, for life celebrations. Our staff is dedicated to accommodating traditional and special requests in funeral services, maintaining affordability while honoring each family's unique traditions and customs.
